I just got my new drawing pad in the mail today. My brand new chiuahua puppy, Paco bit the cord in half on my old one. Anyway, I needed to try it out, but I wasn't feeling very artistic or inspired, so here is what I ended up with.
jakusama 2008/7/30 - 18:50:31
How neat! I like the eyes and lips. Congratulations on a new drawing pad. Yay! Can't wait for your "inspired" works!

It says a bad word, so if that's not okay then uh.. sorry.
sankyu 2008/7/30 - 6:47:33
It's cool, and you won't. Go get em
jakusama 2008/7/30 - 9:21:41
Your shading is so soft! I really love the soft light on the glasses. The smile makes me grin, as well, and the lips rock. Very soft and pretty picture! :)
embo 2008/7/30 - 10:59:23
oh! this is so cute! I love the the lips and the eyes.
blumeaniandglove 2008/8/12 - 20:58:50

Not accurate timer; it didn't take five and a half hours!
jakusama 2008/7/30 - 9:16:9
I really like the sketchy-shading aspect of this. It's pretty neat. The colors are really complimenting, too. I like it. :)

Mmm. Foreshortening hates me. I tried, but I think I failed. Anywho, I'm around and alive. Yay I made a picture. Lineart still kills me. That's why we practice, right? Oh, and any crits are welcome. <3
dekutree64 2008/7/26 - 17:35:49
Yah, foreshortening is tricky. This actually looks about right though, and the lineart is not bad either. At least you can draw curves in a single stroke. With me it's more like scritcha-scritcha-scritcha back and forth until it's a giant black blob, and then go back and carve out the actual shape with the eraser. Takes forever :p

The only thing that looks odd to me is that her rib cage seems to be caved in... But the pretty hair makes up for it :)

I think I'll draw another something tonight. But first I must get out and exercise
purrdy 2008/7/30 - 19:36:53
Ooo! Love that hand. Foreshortening is hard. >.< Just keep practicing. <3

jakusama 2008/7/26 - 13:29:39
Tasty. Where can I get one?

I dunno why, but I really, really like the lips. The shape, the slightly-parted-ness, all of your shading is beautiful and smooth. Very pretty. And I love the hair. And the eyes. Eyes are incredible. I almost wish they were more open so we could see more of them, but then it wouldn't go with the rest of the picture. <3
purrdy 2008/7/30 - 19:37:44
Beautiful colors and shading. Love those eyes.

How fun! He looks like he's having a good time. Or he just caused a lot of trouble. Love the shades!

La di da~

And this is what listening to girly music gets me--pink. >_< Anywho, random picture of a girl's back (with a bg I absolutely despise).

C&C is welcome!
jakusama 2008/7/26 - 13:31:12
I love how painty the picture looks. It's actually really, really neat, and I kind of like the background, actually. And the hair. I wish my hair did that. The color palette was beautifully chosen; very easy on the eyes.

Greetings TACO! I haven't drawn anything in ages. Good to see a few familiar faces still doodling around here :)

I just couldn't contain my joy for Slayers Revolution. Spontaneous revival of my favorite series of all time, and it's actually good. So I decided to draw these two, because a) they look cute together, and b) I read an adorable fanfic pairing them.
jakusama 2008/7/19 - 23:24:39
Hooray! Good to see you again! Love this. Their expressions are adorable, and I've always loved your style. Your shading is awesome, as usual.
jakusama 2008/7/26 - 21:10:16
For the record, I dig your scritcha-scritcha-scritcha. It's a really nifty style.

jakusama 2008/7/19 - 23:25:9
Hehe that kind of looks like where I live. The Arizona monsoons are rolling in. I like the lightning.
mark_the_third 2008/7/20 - 17:42:30

Welcome! I like the start. It kind of reminds me of Mulan from the Disney movie.

Concocted from boredom at work. Yar.
frosty_glow 2008/7/14 - 17:51:36
the hair looks very soft and silky
jakusama 2008/7/19 - 23:27:3
Wow. the hair. I love the hair and the eyes. They're fabulous. The hair has sort of an ethereal glow to it. I love the eyes, too. The soft cyan glow.

Forgot to pick room.....DOH!
Stick it in the Sketch corner.....cheers!
golden 2008/7/13 - 3:32:26
Great picture as always mika. It's beautifully smooth. That eye and the blob in front of it makes it look like a dog to me, but maybe that's just me xD
kelli 2008/7/13 - 17:8:15
Holy Cow Batman, it's Mika! I thought you didn't draw here anymore (not that we're not all thrilled to see ya) =) Good to have ya back *does a happy dance*

*clears throat* aaaaanyway... I'm diggin' the eye-focal point. it really pulls you in since it's an identifiable element in the drawing... the rest is sort of eerie (or at least for me it is) because I cant really tell what's happening because of how you abstracted the image... yet you put in just enough detail to keep me guessing (is it a cyborg? was there some sort of accident? is it good? is it evil?)
As always, quite the interesting image... and way to use a full value range *drools*

embo 2008/7/19 - 22:45:44
hello :D
I found a birthday card you sent me a while back!
see you've still got quite a bit of craft left in ya
jakusama 2008/7/19 - 23:28:27
MikaMikaMika!! Hooray! I love your ability to shade. It's so dynamic, and refreshing at the same time. Very cool, and I really hope you hang around and doodle some more. :D

This is me, i just got dumped... so everything is kinda blurry. trough the tears. ;( <3
mogily 2008/7/11 - 17:42:3
I'm so sorry :( I can see how you placed your emotions into this piece. keep putting those feelings into art! it's very therapeutic.
mika 2008/7/13 - 3:42:36
If he/she had the nerve to dump you then they probably wern't worth the effort anyway.
jakusama 2008/7/26 - 13:33:14
Aww, I'm sorry about that. And I agree. They weren't worth it. But I'm hoping you feel better now - drawing out emotions always helps me to let go of them, and this is an exceptionally emotional piece, so I'm hoping maybe you were able to let go of some of it now. :) Hang in there!

oh no sorry wrong board!!!! my apologies!!
i am a little distressed at the moment x___x

gleeful1 2008/7/6 - 11:11:37
the girl looks like she is praying for rain while knowing that it will not fall.
i love the lashes on her eyes, and her delicate upturned nose
golden 2008/7/7 - 18:51:24
You probably meant for it to be in Sketch corner, but I think it's nice enough to be here. The sketchiness is so stylish it might as well be a finished piece of work.
frosty_glow 2008/7/9 - 0:15:24
oh mann I loved this as soon as I saw it. its wonderful with the thin sketchy lines
blumeaniandglove 2008/7/11 - 10:32:41
I also think it needs to be here

I love your arts, hardcore/
mogily 2008/7/11 - 17:43:42
I agree, the sketchiness makes it look so perfect. this is baller!
jakusama 2008/7/26 - 13:34:22
I love the sketchiness of it. I want the rain to fall. It's kind of fun to see your "sketches." (For the record, I wish I could "just sketch" like this. :p
artanis 2008/10/3 - 16:5:37
gleeful1 -- i know this comment is only months after you wrote what you did and you might not never see it, but i just wanted to let you know that your interpretation is basically exactly what i was thinking... rain and despair, and some kind of fervent spiritual last-ditch hope...
